The Rolling Stones, "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!" (40th Anniversary Deluxe Boxed Set)

92 Billboard Rating

For a band with such a storied history of great performances-and a large catalog of live recordings- there's little a fan can buy (legally, at least) that captures the Rolling Stones at the full height of their powers. "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!," which captures the band at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1969, has always been the best of the bunch. This smart four-disc package commemorates the concert's 40th anniversary with a pristine remastered version of the original recording, five previously unreleased songs from the same show and an entire disc devoted to the fiery opening acts, B.B. King and Ike & Tina Turner. But the real treat for Stones fans is the 29-minute DVD by director Albert Maysles, which features material left out of the documentary "Gimme Shelter." Here, Maysles manages to give the vast stage show at the Garden an intimate feel and reveal the band's immortality.
